Thame Public Art Brief
Below is our current Public Art Brief.
Art Leading Wayfinding
We are seeking creative expressions of interest for a series of wayfinding markers across the Town. This commission should celebrate the heritage and history of Thame using the theme of ‘Meeting Places’, at the same time as improving communication routes through the town. We are also keen to explore several pieces of standalone artwork -some with practical application – in various set locations around the Town that allow increased exploration of the heritage of these specific areas. We are looking for an artist (but would also consider a group of artists) who can also demonstrate successful experience of bringing the community together in the development of final designs. We will consider applications responding to all or to smaller parts of the brief.
Please note that we will require the successful candidate/s to have a minimum of £2 million Public Liability Insurance in place.
Deadline for submission of proposals is midday on Tuesday 25 May 2021.
Expression of interest should be submitted electronically to becky.Reid@thametowncouncil.gov.uk entitled ‘Expression of Interest in Art Leading Wayfinding project’.
Submission is requested as one PDF document and should include:
- Examples of at least 6 previous projects you have worked on
- An artistic statement in response to the brief and your interest in the project
- An indication of your approach and ideas to this opportunity
- Ability to deliver this project within the indicated budget and timescales
- The name and contact details of a previous commissioner
We anticipate interviews for shortlisted artists will take place in early June.
Further enquiries about the project should be sent to:
Thame Town Council
